Cadillac-CTS

Cadillac-CTS

The Cadillac CTS is a mid-size luxury car manufactured by the Cadillac division of General Motors. The CTS is currently available in three body styles: 4-door sedan, 2-door coupe, and 5-door sport wagon. Cadillac introduced the CTS in 2002 as a sports sedan, succeeding the Cadillac Catera. The CTS and the supercharged CTS-V variant have been named to the Car and Driver 10 Best list for three consecutive years.
Wayne Cherry and Kip Wasenko designed the exterior of the first generation CTS and this vehicle marked the production debut of the "Art and Science" design language first seen on the Evoq concept car. Bob Boniface and Robin Krieg designed the exterior of the third generation CTS.

Introduced in 2002 as a 2003 model, the CTS was built on GM's new rear-wheel drive Sigma platform and sported a fully independent suspension. It marked a return to RWD cars for the brand, and was the first Cadillac to be offered with a manual transmission since the 1988 Cimarron. The CTS was designed as a replacement for the Opel-based Catera. The CTS was nominated for the North American Car of the Year award for 2002.
CTSs are manufactured at GM's Lansing Grand River plant in Lansing, Michigan. The CTS was also assembled in China during 2006, and production was subsequently discontinued.
 On March 26, 2013, Cadillac unveiled a new version of the CTS. This time the CTS will have the 2.0T I4 and 3.6L V6 from the ATS, but with an all-new Twin Turbo V6 producing 420 horsepower and 430 lb. ft. of torque. The new engine will only be available in the CTS Vsport: a new trim that serves as a step between the 3.6 and the high-performance CTS V.
